Problems with bitcoin wallet

Hi All, 

 

I just recently got Infinity 1 installed, I get a good 5.4mb download and a strong 1.2mb upload (tested via uploading to a french server / vps), however I wish to host a bitcoin node on my network, however I am stuck because the wallet does not send any traffic out, I know BT throttle P2P on the line (ive noticed on torrents like linux) but I didnt think it was this bad, is there something I can do about this as I really want to help the network out and host a node.

 

Any help would be appreciated !

Re: Problems with bitcoin wallet

I assume that you followed the setup instructions and forwarded the appropriate port.

Quote from one site: "It’s critical that you forward port 8333 on your router to the IP address of the computer that is running your node".

 

More info here:

And here:

Loads more info, just Google for it.  Don't forget to adjust QOS settings or you could impact your browsing etc.

If, as you say, you only have 1.2mbps upload it's not a lot to begin with, equates to about 150 kilobytes/sec.  So not a lot.  The router may also be applying QOS to the connection so that your browsing etc is not affected too much.

BT do not throttle P2P services and have not done for a few years now
